So we got our first “real” snow of the season!! The weather man predicted that it would start snowing Friday night and at 11pm not a single flake was to be seen. I have to admit there was a pang of disappointment. I had mentally prepared myself for my first Northern winter snow and was ready to break out my snow boots. We were expecting 4-6 inches and when by 11 there was 0 white stuff, I thought this is gonna be just like Texas. Colin just smiled at me and said, “They said it wouldn’t start till midnight. You’ll gt your snow.” Colin had to work on Saturday so when the alarm went off he got out of bed and peeked through the blinds….half awake I said, “We didn’t get any did we?” “Oh no baby he said, we have at least 2 inches and it’s still snowing at 1/2 an inch an hour!” I smiled inside. Snow, real live honest to goodness Northern snow.
I got up at 8.30 and researched Colin’s Christmas presents, milled around the house a bit and every once and while I’d check outside to make sure it was still snowing and still sticking…it was! About 11 ish I took a shower and got dressed, then got Kalie in her coat and shoes (we bought her shoes because the salt solution will burnt he bottom of their feet!) then I bundled up and headed outside. Kalie was so excited about the new ground covering and let me know quickly that a quick walk across the street would not suffice. So off to the dog park we went-snow still falling-so Kalie could run off her energy. She ran off her energy and she even ran out of her shoes! We decided that the shoes were not for snow but instead for the salt only.
After she ran around for a bit we decided to go to Micheals. I wanted to buy some fabric to use as a tree skirt. They didn’t have any so we came back home. I was surprised that it wasn’t that cold, but I think what made it bearable was that the wind was not blowing. It was cloudy but it wasn’t too cold. Colin came home after work and we got ready for the OU game. We played a nervous game against Nebraska, but we won in the end–3 points, we’ll take it. Here we come Fiesta Bowl. I think it was a good Saturday.
It’s a bit icy now and we are looking forward to another week. Christmas is coming close and we are desperately looking for a caterer to cater our Christmas dinner–no luck so far! I wish I could just call James at the Palace and get a great dinner. I would not onlyknow that I would get a great tasting meal but I know that with James you always get so much food. If anybody knows of any great caterers in Chicago send me their number. Hope ya’ll are worm down in Texas and Oklahoma! TTFN
